BALLOONIST ULIASSI WILL BE FULL OF SUPPLEMENTS, NOT HOT AIR
Published October 24, 1997
CT-based sports nutritional supplement provider AmeriFIT will help sponsor balloonist Kevin Uliassi in his attempt to circle the globe this winter. Uliassi is competing against four other teams of balloonists racing to become the first to circumnavigate the globe non-stop. Uliassi, who is expected to travel 20,000 miles at altitudes up to 35,000 feet over 7-14 days, will be using specially chosen AmeriFIT products, including Newt Power, Newt Ade, the Target Nutrition Systems Energy and Recovery Complex, and AmeriFIT's Vitamin E-400 (AmeriFIT).
